IBS collects two types of information about our visitors to the Website: Personally Identifiable information, and Non-Personally Identifiable information.

1) Personally Identifiable Information refers to the information that allows IBS to know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities such as requesting a quote for services, you may provide certain information about yourself.

2) Non-Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. IBS may gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on the Website. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. Examples of the kind of information that may be collected include the uniform resource locator (“URL”) for the internal site that you just came from, which URL you go to next, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. The Website also may store cookies on your computer.

IBS does not collect any Personally Identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily provide it. In addition, IBS may also collect, either directly or indirectly, certain Non-Personally Identifiable information. In general, IBS uses this information to learn where visitors to the Website come from, how they interact with the Website and to generate reports about the use and interaction with the Website.

IBS does not sell, trade or rent your Personally Identifiable Information to others. Subject to the law, regulations and rules of professional conduct governing business practices in the State of California, IBS may provide Personally Identifiable information to third parties who provide services for the mutual benefit of IBS and its clients.

Except as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information by IBS. Other sites accessible through this Website have their own Privacy Policies and their own data collection, use, and disclosure practices. IBS is not responsible for the policies or practices of third parties.

From time to time, IBS may need to change this Privacy Policy. You can determine if this Privacy Policy has been revised since your last visit by referring to the “Revision Date” at the top of this Website page. Your continued use of the Website after such modifications constitutes your agreement to be bound by the modified Privacy Policy.

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
